CHICAGO , November 14, 2023 (press release) –

Grainger (NYSE: GWW), a leading broad line distributor of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products serving businesses and institutions, today announced for the third year in a row it has been named to the Military Times Best for Vets: Employers list, ranking number 38 out of 230 companies and taking first place out of all industrial companies.

In recognition of those who have served in the military, the company held a Veterans Day event including a company-wide homecoming celebration for Grainger team member and Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Sergio Rodriguez Espinosa following 638 days of active military deployment.

“Today we honor all veterans and active military for their service and celebrate Sergio’s safe return from a long deployment,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Legal Officer, Nancy Berardinelli-Krantz, a U.S. Army veteran. “We are excited to be named as one of Military Times’ Best for Vets Employers for a third year. This recognition speaks to Grainger’s strong culture, people and values that make us an employer of choice among veterans and their supporters.”

In addition to welcoming home Espinosa, Grainger thanked all their team members who have served and celebrated being named a Best for Vets employer, an award based on the results of a voluntary survey that asks companies about their policies, practices and benefits for veterans and their families.

Grainger is proud to support team members who serve and their families.

  • Military reservists and National Guard members who are called to active duty are eligible for up to 12 months of their regular company pay, in addition to their military pay.
  • Grainger offers emotional support resources for all team members and their family, including active military members and veterans. This includes six free sessions with a licensed therapist and unlimited self-guided emotional wellbeing exercises. 
  • Grainger supports team members through eight different business resource groups, including its Veterans & Military Supporters Business Resource Group.
